=== Growing Ubuntu for Cloud and IoT, rather than phone and convergence ===
Mark Shuttleworth, on behalf of Canonical, announces changes coming to the Ubuntu Desktop and Ubuntu's convergence effort. He writes, "I'm writing to let you know that we will end our investment in Unity8, the phone and convergence shell. We will shift our default Ubuntu desktop back to GNOME for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS." He explains that the focus will now be "in the areas which are contributing to the growth of the company."
=== Nish Aravamudan: iSCSI initiator names in cloud-images ===
Nish Aravamudan writes about a bug that he fixed with iSCSI initiator names. He explains, "The iSCSI initiator name is intended to be unique, so that you can not only uniquely identify which system is using a given target on the iSCSI server, but also, if desired, restrict which initiators can use which targets." He gives more details about the fix and links to the relevant bug reports.
=== Canonical Design Team: What we learned at our first official GV design sprint ===
Inayaili de Leon Persson from the Canonical Design Team writes a detailed post about the first sprint they did "as outlined in The Sprint Book, by Google Ventures' Jake Knapp." She shows what they did each day, and what they got out of the sprint.
=== Dustin Kirkland: A Thank-You Note to the HackerNews Community, from Ubuntu ===
Dustin Kirkland thanks the HackerNews community for giving feedback on the thread "Ask HN: What do you want to see in Ubuntu 17.10?" He goes into detail about what questions were asked, how many people asked those questions, and the answers to them.
